In this podcast:
Teams • Culture • Entrepreneurship • _southstart

We were joined at _southstart by investor and entrepreneur – Steve Baxter. Most people will know Steve from Shark Tank Australia but his career is a lot more extensive than that. He has worked with many successful companies in leading roles over the last 25 years, roles that include Founder, Director, CEO and more.  

We discussed the work ethic of young people and how it’s changed since Steve’s earlier work with start-ups; with an insight into the difference between millennials entering the workforce now vs the generation that were starting out just after the recession of the 90s.

I asked Steve how he maintains his teams, he likes to keep it old school – no ping pong tables and no working from home.

And of course, I had to ask Steve about his time on Shark Tank and whether, as an investor, it was beneficial. Also, touching on the Beer Pal pitch, an app we developed.  

A great chat with some insights into an old school work culture in a modern environment. Enjoy!
